Yes, you have a High Priest!
He’s pleading your case right now before the God of heaven. You are so fortunate. There are millions who don’t know he is ministering for them, and many who don’t care, but you are so blessed.
Your High Priest is the only being in the entire universe who really knows the Ancient of Days (Matt 11:27), the Judge now deciding your case in the court of heaven. But your Advocate is well able to defend you before the prosecution, who accuses you day and night before the deliberating jury. Your Mediator has secured an acquittal acceptable to the Judge and jury. But there are conditions. It was arranged with the stipulation of a plea bargain. You must agree to surrender your old life and accept a transformation, free if you accept it. Your High Priest offers you a substitute—his own life in place of yours. This life was the life he lived without a trace of error or imperfection by allowing the life of his Father to live in him. Now he offers to live in you and give you the same perfect error-free life. So simple. So powerful. So wonderful.
Your High Priest became the High Priest for this world 20 centuries ago after dying for every person that ever lived and will ever live. Because he lived a perfect life without one selfish act or thought, his Father, the Sovereign of the universe, restored his life and inaugurated him as High Priest for the human race. For over 18 centuries he has been representing all who come to him, obtaining their pardon, and dispensing his powerful, victorious life to all who desire it.
The Bible has a lot to say about your High Priest. The book of Hebrews assures us that “we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God” Hebrews 4:14. Jesus, the Son of God, is your great High Priest. He is now in heaven after living a life here on earth as the Son of man that he might “be touched with the feeling of our infirmities” and “tempted in all points like as we are” Heb 4:15. This was “in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death”, his Father. Hebrews 5:7.
But there was no other way. Only one being in all the universe could redeem mankind: one who was equal with God (Phil 2:6) and equal with Man, the second Adam (1Cor 15:45). The Word of God, who proceeded forth from God (John 8:42), who came out from God (John 16:27,28; 17:8) was in the form of God (Phil 2:6) because God was his Father (John 5:18) and he was the Son of God.
